Suzanne Dickens admits she cannot wait to take on her first Glenmuir Women’s PGA Professional Championship final after winning the qualifying event at Little Aston Golf Club.

Ladies European Tour player Dickens, of Nene Park Golf Club, has now qualified as a PGA Professional after completing her foundation degree.

That made her eligible for the Glenmuir event and she placed down an early marker by carding a one-under-par round of 73 at the Birmingham venue.

She tied at the top of the leaderboard with Lucy Williams of Mid Herts Golf Club. But it was Dickens who won on countback.

They will now join five other qualifiers for the £5,000 final which will be held, supported by Peugeot, being held on June 13-14 at De Vere Slaley Hall in Northumberland.

The event also doubled as the second round of the WPGA One Day Series and Dickens’ win also boosted her standing in that event.

Dickens admitted it meant a lot to her to qualify for the Glenmuir final.

She said: “It’s the first time I’ve been eligible for it having just qualified so I’m really pleased to get there.

“It’s going to be competitive with some very good players taking part.

“But I’ll be giving it my best on the day; it should be a good final at an excellent venue.”

Dickens also has her eyes on the One Day Series after circumstances did not allow her to complete it last year.

She explained: “I had to forfeit the last round as I was playing in a European Tour event.

“So Laura Hendriksen won but things have gone well this year.

“That was only my fourth round of golf this year at Little Aston so I’m encouraged by the way it’s gone so far.”
